Ethan is growing up!

Ethan has graduated from his crib to his toddler bed.  We converted the crib on Sunday.  He has had 2 naps and 2 nights in this bed and he has done great!  I hope this continues.

I took this picture today during his nap. Thankfully I did not wake him up.  :-)

VBS Day 5

What a fun week we had.  The kids really loved VBS. I had fun too. I'm going to miss my little group.  But I have to admit, I'm so happy that tomorrow we don't really have anything planned.  :-)  I'm exhausted.

We were so happy that Grandma & Pop Pop came to VBS Family night.  The girls loved having them watch them sing.

VBS Day 3

Today is Favorite Sport Team day.  We had a lot of fun.  Today was also a VERY special day at VBS.  Jadyn asked Jesus into her heart today!  We are so excited for her.  She is very shy about it and does not like that I'm sharing it with the world!  :-)  But I can't help it. I'm a proud mama! 

Day 3 is done and now we go to day 4.  Should be another great day at VBS.

VBS Day 2

Today was favorite Character t-shirt day.  The girls are wearing Tiffani shirts.  :-) 

The kids had a great day.  I feel it's a success if Ethan can go to his room and not cry.  And today that is what happened. He walked in, made sure he said "HI" to his teacher and then started playing. He did not even say goodbye to me.  When I picked him up he was playing and so happy.  You know he's had fun when he's yawning in the car on the way home.  :-)

Abby & Jadyn love that I'm their "tour guide".  I love being with them too.

We survived day 2.  Looking forward to day 3.  Here are pictures from today.

VBS Day 1

Today was Crazy Hat day at VBS.  The girls wore their Girl Scout hats.  They have their "swaps" on them.  Ethan wore his Rays hat (I know, not so crazy). But they made hats in his class so he wore that.

This is Ethan's first year going to VBS.  He cried when I dropped him off. But he quickly got happy and had a lot of fun.  My friend is his music teacher and she said that he danced & laughed but when she turned the music off he yelled "uh oh!"

Tomorrow is favorite character day.  I will take pictures for you.

Like Father Like Son

Little Man is growing up fast. And he wants to do whatever his daddy is doing. 

Getting Them Home

My friend has started this blog to advocate for the kids who need families.  Be sure to keep checking the site.  Maybe you'll find your child.

Photos & Updates

Wow, I'm a blogger slacker.  So sorry it's been weeks since I've touched this blog.  Life is going so fast that I don't have the time or energy to update it.  But, I have had a few people nicely mention that I've been slacking, so here I am, trying to update on what has kept us so busy.

Last time I posted on here was Mother's Day.  Wow!  Seems like yesterday.   Here are some pictures with captions on our busy life & the kiddos.
